Nationals’ Patrick Corbin Honors Tyler Skaggs With Two Simple Gestures


Los Angeles Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs died unexpectedly Monday in Texas, and his best friend Patrick Corbin was pretty shaken by the news.

In his start with the Washington Nationals on Tuesday, Corbin paid tribute to his friend by writing 45 — Skaggs’ jersey number — in the dirt before he took the mound.

The Nationals pitcher also switched his jersey number to 45 instead of his usual 46 to honor Skaggs.

Skaggs and Corbin were drafted together by the Angels in 2009, traded together to the Arizona Diamondbacks, and in 2013, Skaggs was traded back to LA while Corbin remained with Washington.
